As of today I am 20 days away from my due date! Let that sink in and blow your mind haha.
I've had a lot of things on my mind lately (obviously) but one thing I do think a lot about are the postpartum goals that I have set for myself. I know that I have to wait roughly 6 weeks before I get the go ahead from my doctor to work out but I have to say that I am already looking forward to that moment. I've had people telling me to enjoy this time and just relax but when you go from running on a consistent basis to an inconsistent basis it's hard.
I am the type of person that has to have goals, I have to have something to work towards. I am already signed up for 2 races that I have been looking forward to all year. There may be a few other smaller races sprinkled in between just to get out and move, plus it will be so fun getting Emersyn used to her stroller and running (well riding for her). I know it will take time to get back to where I want to be but I'm excited to start that process.
November 13, 2016: Pensacola Half Marathon. I will be running this with Kyle and my sister! I can't wait.
December 10, 2016: Cajun Country Half Marathon
This will be my 3rd year running the Cajun Country, last year was interesting because I had my fastest half time during this event and I was also 4 weeks pregnant and had no idea! :)
These will be half marathons #14 and #15, I really can't believe we have done so many. I may even throw a full marathon in there the early part of next year.
I am excited to continue on this journey!
